Release Date: January 3, 2012


Since she’d been on the outside, she'd survived an Aether storm, she’d had a knife held to her throat, and she’d seen men murdered.

This was worse.

Exiled from her home, the enclosed city of Reverie, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland—known as The Death shop—are slim. If the cannibals don’t get her, the violent, electrified energy storms will. She's been taught that the very air she breathes can kill her. Then Aria meets an Outsider names Perry. He's wild—a savage—and her only hope of staying alive.

A hunter for his tribe in a merciless landscape, Perry views Aria as sheltered and fragile—everything he would expect from a Dweller. But he needs Arias’s help too; she alone holds the key to his redemption. Opposites in nearly every way, Aria and Perry must accept each other to survive. Their unlikely alliance forges a bond that will determine the fate of all who live under the never sky.

Why it's one of my Favorite Reads:

This book took me into a world that I never dreamed could exist. The characters were so perfectly well written and the world building was amazing! Veronica is truly a gifted writer and her work definitely shows that. Plus, I got not one, but TWO book boyfriends from that series. Perry (Obvi!) and Roar! (If you read the series you'll understand why!)
